One of the most famous wildlife tours in Tanzania is to witness the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti. This is when more than 1.4 million of these herding animals make an annual trek in search of fresh grazing. That is what most people think of when they hear the name wildebeest.

One of the most famous wildlife tours in Tanzania is to witness the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti. This is when more than 1.4 million of these herding animals make an annual trek in search of fresh grazing. That is what most people think of when they hear the name wildebeest. But at another time of the year there is another spectacle involving this placid beast. Between December and February more than 700,000 calves are born. A trip to the grass plains then will reveal a wildlife sight to savour.
A Green Season wildlife tour in Tanzania is one between the wet and dry seasons when the weather is pleasant. There may be showers but the countryside is fresh and there are plenty of animals to see. At the Ngorongoro Crater large bull elephants roam amongst Cape Buffalo, Black Rhinos and Spotted Hyena. This is a fantastic birding spot where six or seven species of vulture can be seen together on a carcass. There are also many species of stork here, including Marabou and Yellow-billed. And Silvery-cheeked Hornbills roost in the trees while Sacred Ibis wade in the wetter areas.
Arusha and Tarangire National Parks are also popular destinations for birdwatchers and anyone wanting to experience a typical African safari. Lions, Cheetahs, zebras and gazelles can be seen on game drives and the scenery is awe-inspiring. At Manyara National Park there is the spectacle of thousands of flamingos in the Rift Valley and Manyara Lake. Also present are hippos, giraffes, baboons and many species of monkeys.
For birdwatchers, wildlife tours in Tanzania offer a chance to see many of the 1,175 recorded species that inhabit the country. Turacos, Ground Hornbills, African Eagle Owls, kingfishers, sunbirds, Paradise Flycatchers, bee-eaters and Crowned Cranes – the bird list is mouthwatering.
Of course, to maximise your chances of seeing these wildlife wonders you need the guidance of a local wildlife specialist. The tour operators on Blue Sky Wildlife are here to answer your questions. And they can help you book a wildlife tour in Tanzania to remember forever.
